Unlike the older framework, the CIHS framework uses the terms “collaboration” and “integration” in particular ways. Collaboration describes how resources—namely, health care professionals—are brought together, and integration describes how services are delivered and practices are organized and managed. Like its predecessor, the overarching CIHS framework has three main categories—coordinated care, colocated care, and integrated care. However, each category now has two levels of degree along the continuum. Designers of the framework describe each main category in terms of a key element, which differentiates between the two levels in the category. For example, for the initial category of coordinated care, the two levels are “minimal collaboration” and “basic collaboration at a distance,” and the key element that differentiates between the two levels is communication—the frequency and type of communication.
